Property Description

A must see-this super two-bedroom, 2 windowed bath is charmer, packed with all that you need for comfort and enjoyment, is the one to see. In move-in condition, every bit of space is so well utilized to make for easy living. High beamed ceilings, excellent conditioned original wood floors, and an arched doorway keep the prewar vibe throughout. A sweet entry foyer greets you and guides you to a living room with a windowed designated dining area. A newly renovated, easily accessed windowed hall bathroom adjacent to the primary corner bedroom with north and west windows fills the room with light. The second bedroom, on the other side of the entry foyer, with its own access to the building's outside corridor, provides the utmost privacy, if desired. This bedroom, den, or office has its own private windowed shower room with sink and toilet.

The Gemstone is a highly desired rarity on the UWS, It is a pre-war condominium F/S building that is magnificently maintained, with a superb garden oasis, a beautiful rooftop, children's playroom, 24-hour accessible laundry, storage bins, and bike storage. It is in the perfect location near Riverside Park and all its Glories. The best food shopping imaginable-Fairway Trader Joe's, Citarella, to name a few, are at your fingertips. The best transportation with the 72nd street hub, the cross-town bus, provides multiple travel options. Lincoln Center is just a few streets away. If an investment property is something for now or later, this is the one to see.

Two Beds in Lincoln Square


Lincoln Square | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Centered, in name and location, around the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Square’s history is heavily steeped in strong African American and Afro-Caribbean roots. Iconic jazz pianist, Thelonious Monk, is counted among its many former artistic and professional denizens.

The neighborhood is beloved for its amazing shopping, its distinguished art scene, and phenomenal restaurants--and don’t forget Central Park. From Lincoln Square, one is at the gateway to virtually everything New York City has to offer, either in your backyard or via excellent subway access.

With its beautiful pre-war architecture surrounded by some of NYC’s premier skyscrapers, Lincoln Square has become a safe, much sought after neighborhood. If you like living in the action, there are few places in the world that can rival Lincoln Square.
